Let me just be honest… Barack Obama is not the great hope of these United States. Barack Obama is not the messiah (that would be Jesus). Barack Obama is not God, not even a god. And yet the press treats him as such. And I heard on Rush Limbaugh’s program that searching for God on one book seller’s site brought Obama’s book up TWICE. Ugh. Here’s a quote from NewsBusters.org’s Mark Finkelstein
NewsBusters reader Shane S. shared this experience:
I was searching for a book I read in college, “God: A Biography.” I searched Barnes & Noble’s website using the book’s title as my search term. The book I was looking for was the first result given. The second result? “The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream” by the Messiah Himself, Barack Obama.
I tried the experiment myself, and sure enough, it produced the same results. Update: 6:05 PM. Searching for “God: a Biography” no longer leads to the Obama book. You don’t suppose Barnes& Noble reads NewsBusters? But we have the screen capture after the jump, taken this morning, which shows that a search for “God: a Biography” led to The Audacity of Hope.
Not that I think John McCain is all that… honestly there are days I wonder who really would be better. So here’s my question… where are all the honest, upstanding people with a backbone? Who can lead this country in a direction that will NOT drive us into the ground? Who can actually go to D.C. and make changes FOR THE BETTER not just give a good speech and a lot of lip service?
I think people are so afraid of the media hound dogs trying to tear them or their friends and family apart they don’t want anything to do with public life. (Not that I blame them.) And we the public are too content to stand up and demand better behavior out of them… if my kids acted that way they would be corrected, made to apologize and not come out of their room until they could play nice together. Where are their mommas?
